This book takes place at the cusp of the 20th and 21st centuries, in the pre- and post-September 11th world. It is a singular product of its time, packed full of words and images portraying the architectural projects and metaphysical mechanics that have defined Rem Koolhas's OMA-AMO firm over the past seven years. In the format of a small, thick magazine, this "book" is more of an anti-book, an informal tribute the ephemeral world we inhabit. Focusing on the theme "Go East," this visual journey follows OMA-AMO from San Francisco to Tokyo, traversing our massive and turbulent planet in search of "an opportunity to realize the visions that make remaining at home torturous."

    Una vera "trattazione" ironica del grande Rem Koolhaas, l'archi-star europea più gettonata negli ultimi dieci anni.

    Suggerirei di leggere prima "Delirious New York" e "S, M, L, XL"...ma anche "junkspace"!

    Ovviamente date uno sguardo ai progetti di Koolhaas durante la lettura...aiuta, soprattutto chi non ha famigliarità con questa disciplina: l'architettura.
